There’s no stopping Wonder Woman.

After smashing box office records over the last month, the action film about Diana of Themyscira surpassed $700 million in worldwide grosses this weekend — and it hasn’t opened in Japan yet. It has earned $707.9 million worldwide.

Last week, the film, directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, became the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman.

Domestically, the film earned $15.575 million in its fifth weekend. That’s an impressive total, as it was challenged by new releases like Baby Driver and Despicable Me 3 over the holiday weekend.

And the $346.1 million the film has earned domestically in 31 days surpasses those earned by massive hits over the same respective time frame. It out-earned films like Spider-Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy and Zootopia, according to Forbes.

In the DC comics movie universe, Wonder Woman is a stand-out. The movie has passed all other recent DC films in terms of domestic sales, including Suicide Squad, Batman v Superman, and Man of Steel.

While it has yet to be officially announced, Jenkins has said Wonder Woman may be getting a sequel.
